Appearing onMSNBC's AM Joy, former White House aide Omarosa Manigault-Newman accused White House Chief of Staff John Kelly of being a racist and said she believes he fired her because she brought up the rumored tape of President Donald Trump using the N-word.
"Do you think John Kelly's racist?" host Reid asked.
"Oh, yeah," Omarosa immediately replied. "I mean, John Kelly thought the Civil War was about compromise. It wasn't about compromise, General John Kelly, it was about slavery."
Omarosa went on say that she believes that Kelly fired her because "somehow he knew that she knew there was an N-word tape from Donald Trump's Apprentice days."
According to the former aide, there is an email chain that will be revealed showing a discussion of the tape, with former White House Communications staffer Hope Hicks saying the "story has been contained."
